“GOP Climate Plan Faces Pushback — From Republicans

“Republicans’ new climate plan was meant to show voters the party cares about climate change, but it’s also illustrating the difficult tightrope the GOP walks on green issues as it faces internal pushback.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) rolled out the legislative package Wednesday, flanked by some of the party’s most active lawmakers on energy and environment issues.

“The Democrats have trained everybody to think that the only people who care about climate change are the ones who engage in hysterical alarmism or engage in real high-minded but ultimately false aspirations of ‘we’re going to decrease this much’… but they forget about the actual solutions,” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), who is leading a bill on carbon capture research and development.”
